    Get involved. Seek it out. Fun will not come to you at CSUN. You have to find the fun. Matador Nights- A pretty hilarious time. It could be called a carnival that takes itself way too seriously. The DJ's and games and food are all so underwhelming that it's worth it to pre game and head on in for maybe an hour and then leave. It's free so why not? Big Show- Our annual concert event. Cheap tickets, but usually no one interesting outside the realm of shitty electronic music or hip-hop. Outdoor Adventures- Shameless plug: I work here. We take students out on a variety of weekend and single day backpacking, camping, kayaking, rock climbing, and canoeing trips. We subsidize the prices so that it's cheap for students and we build these trips for beginners. It's all about introducing people to the great outdoors. We run about 40-50 trips a semester. It's one of the best things on campus. The Student Recreation Center- A really pretty design with poor space allocation. This is CSUN's Gym that they tell us not to call a gym. They play Top 40 music constantly but it's also a gym you're already paying for so it doesn't hurt to use it. There's a giant rock wall inside and it's great for first timers and for a bouldering sesh in between classes, but if you're an experienced climber you may be better off just heading over to Stoney Point down the road. The surrounding Northridge area consists of: Food Six Flags is about 20 minutes away. Downtown LA is cool I guess. You need a car for this though.

    For fun, I tend to go to the SRC, the school gym. After i workout i go into the pool and swim with friends. Besides the gym and the pool i go to USU area, right next to the gym. There we have a many activities there. You can go to the game room and meet other students and play games. Students can always join a club to become involved and have fun at the same time. I volunteer with the school and I find the activities fun because you are doing something helpful and with friends.

    There are many events throughout the semester, get together with a group of friends and play a sport, go to the gym, or attend concerts on campus.

    Lots of great clubs and off-campus events. Great discount tickets to on and off campus events, including the Performing Arts Center.

    For fun, they have a gym and various sports team which you could join and play with them. Other than that, you could join clubs and start a new one.

    Despite working part time on campus and going to school full time, I think having fun is sort of difficult when you're so caught up in getting work done. But my source of having fun would have to be finding the extra time to use the Student Recreational Center (SRC) that the school offers. The SRC offers so many fitness programs, group exercise classes ranging from kickboxing, cycling, zumba, yoga to belly dancing (who doesn't love that?!) and of course the wide variety of exercise machines; all in which that I love.

    Different organizations, fraternities, and the housing department often put on programs and events that students will enjoy like pool parties, movies, concerts, dance, etc. Have fun but remember to STUDY! :)

    CSUN is located really close to a lot of restaurants and bars. There is a shopping mall that is a 5 min drive away from campus. There is also several movie theaters and bowling alleys that are near by as well.
